I have always enjoyed clouds from the time as a child counting the shapes in them and looking up at their fluffy but yet somehow pressing undersides. They are a friend offering shade after a long hike or hide your shadow on a river bank while your catching that monster trout.
I rode in a plane sometime last year for the first time and was amazed and yes frighten to see the thunder clouds rising up to surround the plane and hide it from view below. Still it amazing me to how important they are for telling weather and even wind conditions.
This is a good site to use in helping children learn about clouds and help them understand the use in weather forecasting. Above is a picture I got from this site. Anyway, no matter how you consider them nothing takes away their magic and their friendly efforts to block the hot sun got to love them.
I love the song from Joni Mitchell that goes like this.
